Mrs Sawyer September 2023
Wonderful welcome from Kate and a beautiful welcome pack very gratefully received. The first thing you see is the absolutely amazing view from the decked area and the lounge windows. We didn’t meet Ian but spoke to him after we came home as we left something behind. Couldn’t have been more helpful. Had a wonderful week long stay (unfortunately cut short by a day due to illness). Everything was just as the other reviews say - stunning! Short walk into Boscastle which is very pretty and yes the hill back up is quite steep but I’m retired and have two hip replacements but didn’t find it too difficult. Just take it slowly - you’re on holiday! Lots of lovely places visited during our stay but probably our favourite was Heartland Abbey. Looking forward to returning to Littlecott in the not too distant future.
Mrs Cole September 2023
A beautiful little property, well appointed and spotlessly clean, with fantastic views over the village. The owners are very kind, helpful and keen to ensure that their guests have a lovely stay, but they are not at all intrusive. Boscastle itself is a special place and there are many lovely places to explore nearby. We would not hesitate to recommend Littlecott and indeed hope that we will be able to return very soon.
Mr Baker September 2023
Very warm welcome. Spotlessly clea. Well positioned for exploring the area. Some lovely coastal walks and lovely places to eat.
Mr Trayes July 2023
Our first stay at Littlecott and it lived up to expectations. Kate & Ian were very welcoming but unobtrusive. It’s a well equipped cottage with lovely views from both the decking area and the windows in the lounge. The parking space allows you to take a 5 min stroll down into Boscastle (10 mins + coming back up the hill). Would recommend staying here as we intend to do the same again.
Mrs Little June 2023
We’re made to feel very welcome. Everything you need is there. Very clean and cared for. Appreciated little touches- bread milk cookies and flowers. All in all a lovely holiday!
Dr Richardson May 2023
We managed to complete a range of scenic walks, right from the front door. We didn't have to use the car at all, which was very relaxing. It is also possible to get to Tintagel and Crackington by bus.
Mr Shilton April 2023
We would highly recommend this gorgeous little cottage, so clean and comfortable we couldn't ask for anything more, we will certainly be back.
Mrs Steger October 2022
Lovely little cottage just for two, with everything that we needed. Spotlessly clean and with lovely views over the valley. Would return to Littlecott if we came to Boscastle again.
Mr Spencer September 2022
Perfect place to stay, quiet location with great views. Property was spotlessly clean and very well equipped, bed was very comfy, bathroom was a good size. The hosts were friendly and unobtrusive. Would highly recommend a stay at Littlecott
Mrs Mackenzie September 2022

Mr Warren August 2022
We would thoroughly recommend this cottage. It is compact, but has everything needed for an enjoyable and relaxing break. Our hosts welcomed us with a few goodies which were much appreciated.
Mr Price July 2022
Very nice modern compact cottage, with adjacent decking offering panoramic views. Great spot for coastal and river walks around the area. Walking back up the steep roads keeps you fit!
Mrs Evans July 2022
Littlecott if value for money. Host are lovely as well as everyone in Boscastle Beautiful part of Cornwall.
Mr Hocking June 2022
A delightful cottage perched on hillside above the lovely village of Boscastle. Kate texted to say we could arrive earlier than stated time, which was very helpful. On arrival we discovered goodies, milk, bread etc., had been left for us in this immaculately clean and well equipped property. The patio is a delight well sheltered, quiet and a sun trap. Kate and Ian are around if you need them but never obtrusive. Lots of walks directly from the cottage and excellent shops and restaurants in the village, a 10 minute walk downhill - coming back is more challenging! We had a lovely week of rest and relaxation.
Mrs Langan June 2022
Ian and Kate are very warm and welcoming hosts. We very much appreciated the thoughtfulness that had gone into a welcoming arrival with milk and butter in the fridge and delicious bread and biscuits set out with a vase of country flowers. The accommodation is excellent and has all the facilities that are needed. Littlecott is well situated with a wonderful view overlooking Boscastle. We wholeheartedly recommend staying for a holiday at Littlecott.
Mrs OWEN May 2022
Very welcoming hosts. The property is small but comfortable and contained all that we needed. Lovely location with easy access to the coast path and some good eateries nearby. Boscastle village is a short walk downhill but a steep walk back but we’ll worth the effort! Beautiful village and a picturesque harbour. We had a lovely week here and enjoyed some stunning walks from the door.
Mr Bushell March 2022
We chose littlecot for the location we were not disappointed we were able to walk a different walk most days without using the car rob and pat
Mrs Wilson March 2022

Perfect break for 2 people on the north coast of Cornwall, ideal for coast path, especially if you like it hilly. Thanks
Mrs Morgan October 2021
A beautiful little cottage with wonderful views. Kate and Ian were very friendly and helpful. We will return.
Mr Noakes September 2021
We enjoyed our stay at Littlecott. We received a warm welcome from Kate on arrival and the cottage was comfortable and had everything we needed. A great base for walking so we hardly used the car. The decking was a great place to sit and chill after a day’s walk .
Mr Eaton September 2021
Location and views excellent. Owners Ian and Kate very friendly and helpful . Would recommend
Mr Knight August 2021
Littlecott was perfect for us. An ideal location that allowed for 'no car' days, with great walks on the doorstep and a village with plenty of food and drink options. Location in Cornwall was also ideal to allow us to explore North and East Cornwall easily. The cottage was perfect and the views of Jordan valley from the lounge and deck were beautiful.
Ms Moser-Harper June 2021
Nice views over the village
Mrs Bush May 2021

Perfect location perfect cottage
Mrs Mortimer July 2020
In what has been a very difficult year for many, we booked Littlecott with a view to still being able to social distance and get to be in our beloved Cornwall again. Littlecott was perfect in so many ways. It was extremely clean and comfortable and very well equipped. We ate in every night and the kitchen is superbly equipped. Kate and Ian were very welcoming without being intrusive. It was a pleasure to meet you both. If you enjoy walking the coastal footpath, then this place is for you. The walks from the cottage are superb. We loved everything about Littlecott and the view across the valley in the evening after a long walk with glass in hand is perfect. We will be back. Thanks Kate and Ian.
Mrs Becker-Nürnberg June 2019
we would like to come again
Mr Brooks March 2019

We very much enjoyed our lovely stay at Littlecott. For us it was a perfect location for great walks on the coast path and we loved the small private patio with a great view. Many thanks to Kate and Ian for the very nice welcome and the well equipped and clean cottage.
Mrs Wyer July 2018
Littlecott is a lovely comfortable place to stay and more than lives up to its description and expectations.
Mr Burgess June 2018
Hosts Ian and Kate were very welcoming. We would have no hesitation in booking again.
Mr Webb April 2018
A truly lovely and cosy cottage. Well equipped, beautifully maintained and spotlessly clean. A genuinely warm welcome from owners Kate and Ian who also provided much appreciated milk,coffee,tea and the most fabulous cookies on our arrival. The cottage has excellent access to the nearby coastal path and is only a short walk to the centre of Boscastle.
Mr Wheeler November 2017
lovely location, with the feel of a little bit of life. Even down to hearing the school children singing in the morning! very sweet. lovely cottage, couldn't ask for more. just what was needed to recharge the batteries!
Miss Gregory July 2017
Kate and Ian have made Littlecot very warm and welcoming and the kitchen was equipped to a very high standard. It was very clean and tidy - the towels were especially fluffy and sweet smelling! Perfect location. We could not fault this property and would thoroughly recommend the area. Literally just out the back of the property was the coastal path. Ideal walking area.
Mrs Wyer July 2017
Littlecott is a lovely place to stay and lives up to its photographs and description. Very comfortable all round and a beautiful view from the private decking area. Very welcoming hosts, with a much enjoyed welcome pack of bread, butter, milk & biscuits - and even a pretty vase of flowers on the kitchen table. Highly recommended!
Mrs Lewis July 2017
We had a wonderful week at Littlecott. Ian and Kate could not have been more hospitable. The property was immaculately clean and very comfortable. It is also brilliantly situated, only a few minutes walk to the coastal path and a short walk into the village for shopping and eating. I would add that although the cottage looks small, it really does have everything that two people need for a week. Boscastle is very pretty but has the feel of a real community, not just a tourist destination. There is a choice of good places to eat, and fabulous food available from the farm shop.
Mrs Butler July 2017
A lovely place for a relaxing break. The owners were very friendly , and the lovely treats were delicious for our arrival.The armchairs were comfy and we slept well. We did lots of walking on the sunny days and drove, used local transport on the wet ones. (only a couple!) The village is gorgeous and all pubs and shops were worth a visit. We highly recommend Littlecott for one or two people. Thank you.
Mrs Fry June 2017
If the cottage stays at this high level,it should have plenty of guests As a disabled traveler I was more than happy with the property and the lovely friendly owners
Mrs Day May 2017
Ideal for walking without taking the car, fabulous views from the decking.

Mr Stevens September 2016
This is a lovely comforable cottage and the owners could not be more helpful.
Mr Pennington May 2016
Excellent small cottage lived up to its name although it was ample for two people. Kate and Ian were very kind and welcoming. The cottage is in a lovely quiet spot with beautiful walks we were not disappointed. Boscastle is a lovely Cornish village busy at times but plenty of lovely restaurants. We will definitely return one day.
Mr Marshall September 2015
Lovely views from lounge & deck & ideally located to explore North Cornwall. Boscastle has good amenities & the cottage has great walks from its door. Everything you need is provided for a comfortable stay. Would certainly stay here again.

The surrounding is very calm and silent, good for recreation. The village of boscastle is a good start for wonderful walks on the south-west coastpath.
Mrs Smith March 2015
Extremely well equipped, and very clean (not just two of everything- so using dish-washer was feasible) car parking right outside (not on road) owners very helpful - supplied us with milk bread tea coffee juice butter etc. and nicest of all vase of fresh flowers just right for two and very warm and toasty
Mrs Robinson February 2015
We would definitely like to stay at Littlecott again.
Mr Fisher December 2014
The cottage is bijoux, but very warm and comfortable. The view over Boscastle is a delight and the patio area very nice and private. Everything you could want was provided. We were especially grateful for the bread, milk, etc for breakfast as we were late arriving.
We would be happy to recommend this property.
